5.0 out of 5 stars Could Become a Cult Classic — Jams Every Cliche Into One Package, November 29, 2013

This could become a cult classic, at least among those of us that have been spies or love spy movies. This was my Thanksgiving break in Afghanisgan, and so good I have put it on background a couple more times as I work on curating Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog.

Heigl is not quite as great as in The Ugly Truth, but this movie has crammed into it every single cliche from across a range of spy movies down to all your neighbors being sleepers and a grand shoot-out in the end, so I for one am very tolerant of the little hic-ups across the movie. It's a low budget hoot and they got to visit Monaco.

On the strength of this movie and being reminded how great she was in The Ugly Truth I have ordered One For The Money and expect to enjoy that. Remember, this is the woman whose orgasm scene in the restaurant rivals Meg Ryan's original in When Harry Met Sally.

Also, the prices on these are extraordinary — under 2-4 dollars! I use my computers for more important stuff, so it's nice to have the hard DVD to put the TV on the side to work.

Other great DVDs along these lines:

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Full Screen Edition)
The Men Who Stare at Goats
Harry Brown
Human Target: The Complete First Season
From Paris With Love

I recommend a total of 133 DVDs at the bottom of the second column of Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog. All my reviews are there, and all lead back to their respective Amazon page.

Best wishes to all,

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Public Orgasm Acting; Best Pair Acting, Charming in Every War
October 31, 2009
This is one of four movies I caught to and from Europe. Of them all, this one was so charming that I watched it three times, the second two on background while reading.

Right up front, this movie makes movie history with best public orgasm acting, directing, and screenplay, but mostly acting. Phenomenal. It buries the previous champion (IMHO), Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally.

Katherine Heigl deserves a great deal more respect in billing. If she was the supporting actress then she's earned an Oscar in my view. I first encountered her in Love Comes Softly but not to remember as an actress. That DVD earned a very good review and for a Christian values film, was pretty phenomenal.

I have not seen any of her other movies, a few listed below that I might pick up, but I have the feeling she is ready to move out of the “chick flick” genre and up to the full enchilada.
